for those who say we already have rivers the difference between old rivers and the 1.8 versions is the way it looks, as you can see it sways back and forth.
Explanation: its because of the flowing water that slowly destroys the side of the river because of the faster current and the way it flows e.g if the stronger current is on the right side then its going to hit the side of the river and crawl across until it comes into the middle and hits the other side pushing itself left and then it will hit the other side and slowly go to the right side, after awhile it will destroy the side parallel say if the water was going right it would destroy the river bank so it would go left.
(Probably not the best explanation but you know :biggrin.gif:)
Looks cool :happy.gif:. It'd be great if rivers could begin at lakes high up in mountains and flowed down creating waterfalls. But that could be done in time. Rivers looks like a great addition though and since I usually travel on a boat when discovering the map of an area hopefully they should make more places more accessible by boats. Cant wait for 1.8. Oh and tweaked, slightly easier boat controls would be cool.
